This is a simple place to eat simple seafood in the downtown Ceuta. Covered terrace outside. Fish and calamari were fresh, simple and the tuna (non-fresh) salad was tasty, too. Moderately priced. Simple place, no fine dining whatsoever.

The restaurant was basically empty, we arrived about 8 pm, we sat on one of the empty tables the waiter eventually after finishing his cigarette came over and we ordered a bier and water, before we had a change to look at the menu card...the waiter recommended us to have the speciality of the day, he pointed out on the card an on the menu which read, price per 100 grams on request, I asked him could we see the fish first, so we can decide how much we like to eat, the waiter was very flipped and arrogant obviously did not understand my request to see the fish before it is cooked and turned up after 5 minutes with a cooked fish bones head and all, Mushy vegetables and some potatoes which seen better days, we had to clean the bones and cut the head off ourself, I had to ask the waiter 3 times to bring us some garlic mayonnaise, which when it eventually arrived tasted old and and the fish was luck warm, definitely cooked hours before and was chewy, the waiter was more interested to chat to a passing guy and smoking rather than looking after his only customers? My recommendation: Stay sway from this restaurant, unless you like tasteless food and not good service, we paid 65 euros for a terrible meal and service P WMore

I told the gentleman at the restaurant that I came there based on a review that I saw actually the review came from TripAdvisor so I couldn't understand the menu because actually they really should have a menu in English but I was able to...use my little bit of Spanish and describe to him what I wanted to eat I got something like a seafood platter which was only 8 year old and really it was much more food than what I was able to eat when I took the first bite I wanted to cry the food was heavenly I told the guy I was going to write "Perfecto" because that's exactly what it is later on I was talking to a friend and she told me what makes this Seafood in this area so good is that first of all it's fresh and second of all they don't fry in canola oil or any other kind of oil they fry their fish in olive oil and they make sure that it's a breaded and seasoned perfectly which is exactly what it was so if you're inside you to make sure that you eat there because you will not be disappointed!!!!More

We were recommended this little fish restaurant by the Tourist Office. We asked for a place where they served fish and seafood and were delighted to find this small restaurant nested in a side street of Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in Morocco. The food was...fresh, delicious and plentiful, the prices were reasonable, the waiter was knowledgeable. All together we had a wonderful experience and would recommend this fish restaurant to anyone in the area ... who likes fish and seafood!!More

As usual, we had fish and it was fresh and nice at...reasonnable prices. The Maroccan waiter was very polite and knew his job. A place to recommandMore
